Classic Kenya

Private Travel | General interest | Wildlife 11 Days & 9 Nights Lead-in price: £5995 Current prices from: £5995

This private journey combines three of the country’s most sensational safari hotspots into a well-paced, awe-inspiring journey that culminates with three nights in the famous Masai Mara - home to one of the largest populations of traditional safari animals in the world.

  • Stay at properties in the heart of Kenya’s conservation efforts
  • Visit a Masai village and interact with locals
